Meet the Salt & Salmon team.

Tom Bannerman, who originally grew up near Invergordon, is joined by partner and Sutherland-native Annie Rose Munro.

Tom says “We knew when making the company, our identity had to reflect Sutherland’s history as well as the salmon’s incredibly journey up the River Shin. The “Salt” in our name is a nod to the old salt houses throughout Sutherland, as well as connecting our love of cooking to the salmon’s journey of salt water to fresh water.
